We need the HP model number (i.e. J9693A to J9696A) in order to give you a correct answer.

Get free NFR key for Veeam Availability Suite 9.5

Veeam is happy to provide a free NFR license (1 year, 2 sockets) to all certified IT Pros. The license allows for the non-production use of Veeam Availability Suite v9.5 in your home lab, without any feature limitations. It works for both VMware and Hyper-V environments

According to HP's release notes, if you are running version 5.7.5 or lower, you will have to do a two step upgrade to bring it current.  It also says you'll need to bring all of them up to a consistent firmware state if you have more than one.
Personally, I'd backup the configuration, maybe even twice, before I did it! (They also say that there will be automatic config changes made by 6.6!)

Thanks Davis I had a read through the release notes this morning and saw the 2 step upgrade

I also noticed that things like NAT will be disabled if enabled and that channel 132 is no longer supported.

It looks like it should hold its config, what do you think?

You won't lose any config doing the upgrade.

I'd still back it up and keep a backup each time I made any changes.  Then you can replace it and restore the backup!

Agree, but still, the question was...

my question is when I upgrade will the controller lose its configuration?

No one has actually answered that until my comment. No model numbers needed, just a simple answer :-)

You won't lose any config. The upgrade will convert existing config and add new config for new features.

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.
